“Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.” -Ray Bradbury

“Fine, if you don’t take the money, I’ll have to buy you everything this Friday.”
“I think you should tell the story because you’ll make it sound nicer.”
“No you order first, no…you”
“Yeah, we can order food for each other…we’ll test it out Friday”
“I want to go shopping” “We can go shopping…they have a UNIQLO there…you know, she hasn’t bought anything from the store here”
“Do you think he actually cares?”
“See the problem is, when I get my license, I don’t know where I would park my car…if I park here, then she’d have to walk home everyday, but if I park in the back parking lot I can drop her home every day, except that I live on the other side…though, I’d feel bad if she had to walk home so I guess it’ll be okay to drop her”
